We live in Oklahoma Sooner country and now that the weather has cooled off, we've gone from hamburgers and hot dogs for our watch parties to foods that favor the autumn temps.
I tried this chicken chili a couple weeks ago to rave reviews. Hope you like it too!

Hearty White-Bean Chicken Chili
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 can Rotel green chile flavor
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian spices (can substitute oregano)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups frozen corn
1-1.5 pound chicken breasts
2 (15 ounce) cans white beans
1 pinch salt & pepper to taste
Warm a skillet on medium. Heat the olive oil and then carmelize the onions and garlic. Dice the chicken and add it to skillet. Cook until it starts to turn white, then shred (I use two forks to pull the meat apart).
Add the chicken broth, Rotel, beans and spices and simmer for about twenty minutes. Alternately, once you cook the chicken, onions and garlic you can throw it all in a crockpot on high for an hour and then serve.
In a house like mine, with little kids and lots of chaos, easy is better, and this recipe worked for me. What's your favorite chili or soup recipe? Don't forget to leave a comment.
